You don't manufacture your cams in-house, do you? Gear hobbers and cam grinders are pretty specialized yet, that doesn't look like just 4-axis milling work on a blank casting.

I think you guys are a little more advanced than the stuff i'm doing...


Valve tool to push the keepers back on when installing valves...




Made a POwerBomb for my YZ426 header a while back (with help)

Made the die, turned it under heat with a bearing welded to a lathe tool
Friend welded it up











Made my own "Camel Toe" for the 12GS







Made my own Stainless radiator guards with the help of my friends CNC Plasma cutter, finger brake, and Tigged them myself






1" Spacer for Scotts Steering damper on KTM











Made a Jack to change a front tire on the trail...

I think I'd put a foot on the end of that trail jack.Looks like it's stab a hole through pavement or dirt.

yeah - It has a foot threaded on the end of it... one side is convex, one side concave. This wasn't the finished version.

I would have to say straight up I am no machinist but a Boilermaker / Welder by trade.
That did not stop me buying a Rong Fu RF30 mill/drill (and rotary table etc) in 1985 and a small Chinese lathe some years later.
It might be said the main obstacle in a lot of cases is ones imagination,ignorance being bliss helps also...

Clear clutch cover Suzuki TL1000S.
The mission,to make a clear cover that had no visible fasteners which had not been done prior and has not been done since.

Pictures here.

http://s30.photobucket.com/albums/c3...ver/?start=all

Start.



One thing with a lathe with no brake means cutting a thread into a shoulder would be near impossible.
Not a problem,remove the lathe drive belts and turn the chuck by hand with the feed engaged.



The layout was plotted manually off a set of engine cases in the mill/drill clocking off the clutch bearing then the hole pattern for the stock plastic clutch cover.
Somewhere one hole was a little off.
No worries,I never did like how the fasteners bit down on the cover surface.
Bored oversize all got titanium top hat inserts saving the day.



Finish.



The clutch itself at that time was a 6 spring TL1000R item with a titanium spider using TL1000S springs.
The titanium sheet (2mm) was from US eBay,the bolts were TL cam cap bolts.
The new towers to suit were alloy and Ti.

The basic shape was marked out boilermaker style as a guide ,the rotary table in the mill guaranteed accuracy.
